Can anyone assist? Helping a friend to find a 1 carat cushion cut stone to replace her cluster ring with a budget of $2,500. Can be slightly under 1 ct if it saves on cost! She would like to purchase ASAP! Appreciate it :)

Here are a few options from James Allen that may be worth pursuing further; the first two are slightly over-budget but very nice.

If you/your friend like any of them, maybe ask JA to put the diamond(s) on hold.

JA will provide up to 3 IdealScope images but only for certain diamonds (I think those within their control/inventory/New York area?).

And, I'm sure other PSers will be by with more candidates to consider and/or comments on the above stones.

It is always a good idea to wait a bit for more feedback, and then update this thread with your short-list of 3 diamonds for further critiquing by PSers before making any IdealScope requests.

Hope this helps!

thank you SO MUCH! She has the 1.03 on hold and is leaning most towards this one as she likes it's proportions (more square-like) + with the wire transfer payment the total price comes to under $2.5K! REALLY appreciate your help! Will post pictures once she gets it...thanks ladies <3 <3
